Vancouver, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 13 2014 / Blue Sky Uranium Corp. (TSX-V: BSK, FRA: MAL (WKN: A0MKXP), "Blue Sky" or the "Company") wishes to announce that the CEO of AREVA Mines ("AREVA") has informed Blue Sky Uranium that AREVA will not be continuing with the partnership as announced on January 4th, 2012.
Blue Sky was initially notified in writing by AREVA's Geosciences division that they would be continuing their partnership with the Company to earn a 51% interest in Blue Sky's Ivana project, after the recent drill program and as per the terms of the MOU between the two companies. It is with surprise that we have subsequently been notified by AREVA's CEO that their company would not continue with the project in Argentina.
Blue Sky confirms it will continue to advance its high potential uranium projects while also seeking new partners. AREVA spent approximately $3 million advancing Blue Sky's projects in the Provinces of Rio Negro and Chubut, Argentina. The Company now retains a 100% interest in all of its projects in Argentina that cover over 5,000 square kilometres. Blue Sky's management is grateful to AREVA for the enthusiastic work climate and professional attitude that they brought to our projects and to our team in Argentina.
